Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little Machine for the price It did exactly what I was hoping it would do. I only wish I would have purchased this auger years ago, would of saved me a lot of money rather then calling a plumber

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This machine is so easy to use,it's like playing with toys. This machine with auto-feed does so much with it's features that it make any job easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Took just a couple of minutes to assemble. Instructions were easy to understand and read. I had no problem removing the drain clog with the 100' cable, I'm thinking about purchasing the auto feed, just got to convince the better half that a man needs more toys to do the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I operate an Adult Care Facility for disabled Veterans I own/operate an Adult Care Facility for disabled veterans, 19 years now. Despite preventative maintenance our main drain line stops up about once a year or so (more often if a Resident sends something not meant for a toilet or what-have-you into the drainline). A call to the plumber always runs me about $200+ and sometimes a wait of a day or so for their arrival must be endured. I can tell you that in an Adult Care Facility a stopped up drain system is an apocalyptic catastrophe. Each time I call a plumber I tell them, VIGOROUSLY, that they must bring a drain auger with MORE than 50 feet of cable or they won't reach the (usual) problem area. Despite my warnings they rarely show up with more than 50 feet of cable and inevitably must call another crew or go get more cable or come back at another time, etc. etc. etc. Through the years of dealing with these issues I have considered, and studied up on, the purchase of my own personal drain auger. But reviews of the lower priced ones (around $300) always left me too cautious to buy one. And this class of augers never have more than 50 feet of cable anyway. Profession augers run $2K to $3K. Couldn't bring myself to do that either. Fast forward to today and again I'm faced with a stopped up drain system. Large amounts of drain cleaner and even an entire bottle of lye failed to fix the problem. So I head off to Home Depot in hopes of finding a super-whammy miracle drain cleaner to pour into my system as a last resort to calling the inevitable and expensive and frustrating plumber. As I'm standing in the aisle staring at the liquids, gels and snakes my eyes drift down and spot a box marked "Rigid K-400". It's a power drum auger drain cleaner. It's not an economy model, not an expensive professional model either. And... wait! What does the box say? It comes with 75feet of 3/8 solid core cable! 75feet! Perfect! Try as I might I am unable to justify NOT buying it at $499. I buy it and get it to the facility just before noon. I read the manual and get to work. The main drain line is unclogged in 15 minutes.By 3:pm ALL my drains (not just the clogged main line) have been cleaned and are functioning perfectly. The machine did all that was claimed it could do. And I didn't have to wait for (or pay) a plumber. I am a happy man.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product, almost rready to use right out of box I have only used this machine on one job since purchasing, but it worked fine. I do not have the power feed on the machine but for occasional use on rental properties mostly, it should be OK. I might consider installing that option later. I would like to have a tool that is a little bigger diameter than what is supplied with the machine to better finish the inside surfaces of 3" line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good machine for general cleaning I have used Ridgid Drum machine for years never had major problems, this one looks to be the same. My only suggestion would be to increase the quality on the pig tail attachments so they are less prone to breaking. The rest are fine and hold up. This machine with auto feed makes the job easier and cut down the amount of time needed to complete. Very happy with the product.

K400 DRUM AUGER

HI, HOW DO I REPLACE THE CABLE ON MY DRUM AUGER?
Asked by: VG2122
Easy, just don't tangle it. Go to a large area and pull the cable out, then you will run into a clip that retains the cable at the very end. Use a flat head to loosen the screws in the back of the drum and the cable comes out.
